STIGMERGIC-SCAPES: AFTER THE REMOVAL OF BODRUM TERMINAL
INFILL BY DECODING: AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL RESEARCH CENTER IN BODRUM
Infill by Decoding: An Archaeological Research Center in Bodrum
Bodrum is a green town, but it is a fragmented green.Bodrum has an important amount of underground water sources, but they are not in use. The archaeological and historical heritage of Bodrum is very dense and valuable, but they are unprotected. In addition, there was an ancient grid-iron plan organization in the history of Bodrum, and even today, we can see the traces of this grid- iron plan. By using traces of the grid-iron plan, an approach is used in order to understand and decode the city. The grid is used as a three-dimensional volumetric tool to understand/decode Bodrum. Various agents, environments and spaces are revealed within the depth of Bodrum ground. According to this stigmergic approach, some operations are suggested to provide continuity in between agents. Within the infill process, a structure is designed in order to provide continuity between underground and aboveground spaces. The proposed structure connects all agents and creates a continuous circulation between underground and aboveground.
